Sonny Gray feeling good, rehab assignments on tap to stretch out

BALTIMORE — Physically, Sonny Gray’s previously troubled right hamstring looked as good as it could during his first rehab Sunday in Fort Myers, Fla., Gray said.

But the twins have opted to take Gray to another rehab – this one will arrive in St Paul’s on Saturday, they said – to continue to take the veteran out.

“There’s no more catch. It’s not there I think or anything, so it’s perfect,” said Gray, who played three scoreless innings and scored five last week. “Coming back to Baltimore… it was just, I think it’s the right decision now to have a normal week, throw a bullpen and just make a start and not necessarily build into the big leagues.”

Gray was built slightly less than his rotating peers out of spring training to begin with.

He was injured during the second start of the season. In the middle of his second innings against the Red Sox at Fenway Park on April 16, Gray suffered a low-grade hamstring strain, which has sidelined him ever since.

“It’s just like, ‘Hey, go up there and just pitch in.’ Just a game where you don’t have to worry about this or that,” Gray said. “… now you can just go up and pitch and build on whatever’s going on can continue. So that’s the direction we’re headed so I’m good with it.”

Prior to Gray’s injury, the Twins were employing a six-man rotation. Whether they do so when he returns is still up in the air. In the interim, Bailey Ober (groin strain) joins Gray on the injured list, and the Twins slipped Josh Winder, a starter from the trade who had been pitching in relief for a long time, into the rotation for the time being.

Baldelli said it is “very possible” that the Twins run a six-man rotation, although without the advantage of an expanded roster, doing so becomes difficult as it would leave them low in the bullpen.

“It could go either way, I would say,” Baldelli said.

Buxton’s Management

Byron Buxton got a scheduled day off on Wednesday as the twins tried to handle his right knee, which took him out of action for some time in April, and his right hand/wrist, when he first hit the pitch. had collided. road journey.

“(We) are trying to get everything back in full force,” Baldelli said. “The only way we’re going to do this is by giving him select days where he’s not starting there, and we’re going to do it. You obviously want to get him out there every day. That’s obvious.” Roop wants to play every day, but we will do that.”

The hitter named for Buxton has the Twins mixing in regular days and days.

“Byron is as good a baseball player as you’ll ever see, and whenever you have a guy like that, you want 162 games, you want to show 700 plates and all that, but that’s what we want. Playing for him is his best performance for the entire season and giving us a chance to win the World Series.” “Here is our goal. What is going on this week may affect events at the end of the year, but the most important thing is to keep going.”
